Injured Arsenal midfielder will not play again until 2023, Major Rescheduling for European fixtures

According to Goal, Mohamed Elneny, a midfielder for Arsenal, might not be able to play again until January 2023.

In the 2-1 victory over Fulham on August 27, the Egypt international suffered a hamstring injury. The midfielder finished the game, but it was quickly apparent how serious the injury was. Elneny’s extended absence was announced by Mikel Arteta, the manager of Arsenal, on September 2.

Elneny is not anticipated to play for the Gunners until the end of the year, per the aforementioned report. The earliest he might act again is in January 2023. His precise return date has not yet been established.

Elneny signed a contract extension in May 2022, albeit he has only appeared in one game so far this season. In June 2023, his current contract with the Londoners will end. However, he does have the choice to remain an extra year.

Following the passing of the Queen, Arsenal’s Europa League match against PSV Eindhoven was postponed.

The match between the Arsenal and PSV in the UEFA Europa League Group Stage that was scheduled to occur on September 15 at the Emirates Stadium has been postponed indefinitely.

Due to the lack of available police resources, the game has been cancelled. A sizeable portion of the money had been earmarked for the burial of Queen Elizabeth II (September 19).

UEFA confirmed the postponement through an official statement on Monday (September 12).

UEFA today announced that the UEFA Europa League tie between Arsenal FC and PSV Eindhoven, originally to be played on Thursday 15 September, has been postponed with a new date to be communicated in due course.

This is due to the severe limitations on police resources and organizational issues related to the ongoing events surrounding the national mourning for Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.

The north London outfit confirmed that the purchased tickets would remain valid for the rescheduled fixture.

Their statement read:

We are working with the authorities to reschedule the match and any tickets and/or hospitality packages purchased for this fixture will be valid for the rescheduled date. Further updates, including information about forthcoming matches, will be shared on arsenal.com.

The death of Queen Elizabeth II forced the postponement of every Premier League Gameweek 7 match. The Queen’s funeral-related activities have forced the Premier League to announce the postponement of three Gameweek 8 matches (Chelsea vs. Liverpool, Manchester United vs. Leeds United, and Brighton & Hove Albion vs. Crystal Palace).
